About Infrared Inspection
Traditional building inspection techniques involve drilling holes in walls, removing whole sections of walls to install inspection ports, and other time-consuming and invasive techniques. Using infrared technology, there is no need for these destructive testing methods.
Infrared inspection (or thermography) is a passive and cost-effective heat-sensing technique used to “see” and “measure” the thermal energy emitted by objects that cannot be detected by the human eye.
Thermography provides a means to view systems (electrical, mechanical, building envelopes) under normal operating conditions to identify abnormally warm or cool areas that indicate moisture intrusion, insulation deficiencies and other energy losses.
BDG’s expertise is in multi-family and commercial building facade evaluations. With our proven inspection techniques and high-resolution infrared thermography, we can rapidly identify costly hidden damage behind most facades. This provides the owner or purchaser with an accurate understanding of the building’s structural integrity in order to make informed decisions.
